The Constitutional Court has annulled provisions of a law requiring commercial radio stations to dedicate a part of their airtime to Slovenian music.

The country's top court said that the rules were incompatible with the rule of law, which made it impossible to determine exactly what constitutes Slovenian music or what musical airtime actually means.

The decision will affect provisions of the media act that required commercial radio stations to dedicate 20% of their airtime to Slovenian music.
